There have not been many hit films about setting up trade unions, but this drama is one. The reason it works is because it concentrates on the character of Norma Rae (Sally Field, who won an Oscar for her performance), a young mother working in terrible conditions in a textile mill in the South of the US. When a union organiser arrives from New York to try to start a new branch, Norma Rae is the only worker who thinks he might have the answer to their problems. It is a film that balances an intelligent, well thought out argument with some big rousing emotional moments.
Centred on a female mine worker in Minnesota, this is a fictionalised account of the first successful sexual harassment case in America.
